A prayer for quiet rest

A prayer for quiet rest –After Psalm 131 (by Josh Huber)

O Mother, you see me as I am–dust and to dust returning.

I keep my eyes level with my station, content with the moments before me.

I relinquish all my poses and do not pretend to possess deep mysteries.

I whisper the sweet things you teach me to my soul; I soothe and comfort it till it is calm and still.

Like a young child nuzzling their mother, a toddler dozing upon her chest–

like the squirming universe settling in your lap, O God–my soul quiets within me. O my people, let’s rest awhile and wait as long as it takes.

O my people, let’s wait and rest with our Mother forever and to the end.
